  • Required to work on Labor Day? Colorado

    I just moved to Colorado from Minnesota and opened a canvass office, so I am unfamiliar with Colorado State Laws. Are my employees required to work on Labor Day?

    If you wish them to, yes.
    Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

      Agreed. With very few legal exceptions, most employers can make most employees work whatever hours the employer wants.

        If you are asking whether or not there are any particular holidays which you MUST give your employees off, no, there are not.

        Federal holidays apply only to federal employees. State holidays apply only to state employees. Private employers are not required to give any holidays at all, nor, in most states, to provide any premium for working on a holiday. (Some limited exceptions to that last in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and possibly Connecticut.)

        Most employers do and it is a nice thing to do if you can afford it. But it is not required by law.
        The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

          I will say that, as an employer, asking on Saturday if you can take away a holiday that is on Monday will absolutely destroy employee morale.

          Are you going to call people over the weekend and tell them to come in on Monday?
